A very nice county park. We have stayed here and will stay again. The sites were nicely sized and fairly level, most were shaded and each had a fire pit and a picnic table. There are lots of activities available, hiking around the lake, picniking, boating, fishing and there is a golf course on one side of the campground. Weekends during the summer are busy and sometimes late on Sunday, the bathrooms have a bit of sand in them. A larger rig might have a bit of trouble maneuvering but our 35' motorhome had no trouble at all. For all the people here on a weekend, it was very quiet in the evenings. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice enough setting but we were disappointed upon arrival at the actual RV park. Wall to wall campers, very tight fit for a 40' M/H. As with many county parks minimal supervision (never saw a ranger or host) often leads to abuse of the rules. Too many rigs per site and rowdy kids ignoring the quiet hours. Perhaps an OK stopover in the off-season for smaller rigs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice family friendly county park in Fort Dodge, Iowa. We stayed on a Memorial Day weekend when all the sites were full and were pleasantly surprised when we noticed how quiet it was in the evening. The park has a golf course, a lake for swimming, fishing and boating (no gas motors allowed), picnic areas, hiking trails and a memorial amphitheater on one side of the lake. The sites were level, grassy and a picnic table and fire pit were at each site. They have wi-fi available, but it costs. They take no reservations, and it is difficult to get a spot on a holiday weekend since those in the know put a vehicle or fill in the paperwork to get a site early in the week to reserve this site for the weekend. We were lucky to get the last electric only spot on a Thursday morning and were able to switch to a full hook-up on Monday, Memorial Day, after some others had left. We have been here before and would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
